Just returned from a lovely lunch at the brand new Hummus Garden. Opened for just a week, the kitchen is turning out great Israeli cuisine.
It's so terrific to have this place on Fort Hamilton Parkway in Kensington. We don't have a lot of options in the area. My husband had a 5-salad platter. Each of the salads was very fresh and nicely seasoned. I had a great sandwich--fried eggplant, sliced hard-boiled eggs, tahini, pickles and chopped cucumbers and tomatoes in a pita. Delicious. As was the large pot of mint tea. Attentive service too. We'll be back--often!
I went here again and I'm sorry to say that while the food is good, the service and atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired.
I've been here three times now, and each time the music has been awful and awfully loud. And the wait staff is really incompetent. I had a young guy today, who also seemed to be making sandwiches with the chef. He plunked down the salad and tea and walked away. Then he and another guy who hangs around there walked outside and I never saw him again. I had to go to the counter to ask for more hot water for the tea to the unfriendly guy in the kitchen and then go back to the counter for the check. How many diners were in the room? One: me. It was the first and only time I didn't leave a tip. I won't be returning.
This is nice to know. Thanks.
It is seldom to find such in some areas of Brooklyn. I am assuming that Houmous Kitchen in Manhattan is Israeli, for they have Gold Star.
One of the best falafel balls I have ever had, yet to migrate to a Borough.
How are Hummus Garden's houmous and falafels?
Are the teas leaf teas, as opposed to tea bags? This is important, as I for one catalogue such leaf tea venues for options when desiring an outing for tea and long sits.
The owner as I read from internet sources is the prior owner of Falafel Fusion. Don't know about that, but, I may check out the Garden.
